"Once the world's premiere getaway spot for unispired artisans, rumour has it this bizarre paradise supplied the vision and inspiration for countless masterpieces through its seemingly magical opulence. Now, decades later, it has fallen from the limelight and its owner, Thurston Last is no more. By some strange twist of fate, YOU have now become the sole proprietor of the Last Resort - willed to you at the final bequest of this unknown relative. However, claiming this inheritance will prove to be no easy task.
As you arrive at the Last Resort, it becomes apparent that someone - something - is ruining the place. Mischievous forces are destroying the remaining vestiges of Last's work and mutating the Resort's powers to serve their own evil scheme. Aided by 9 muses that inhabit the Resort and protect its valuables from the outside world, you need to stop this destruction before it is too late and restore the palace's enchanted splendour.
It is now up to you to discover the secrets of one man's vision, one incredible machine, and one bizarre Resort. It will take sharp thinking, quick reactions, and divine inspiration to complete your quest, but if you do... the powers of the Last Resort are yours!"

As a promotional material mentioned during its release, 9 is so wacky "it makes Woodstock look like a Republican convention."
Such a shame this hasn't been updated for later OS'es.
But, if you're really keen of finding it out for yourself and is somehow conversant with virtual machines, run it under a Win 98 machine and dwelve into others' peoples minds, seeing it all for yourself in the process.
